We believe that learning is a life-long process that begins before birth. Dr. Montessori taught us that “what the hand does, the mind remembers”, therefore we ensure that development is a physically as well as a mentally stimulating process. Children learn by modelling the behaviour of adults around them. One of the most important concepts that a child needs to learn to live successfully in society is that of respect, respect for themselves and respect for others, and this starts from birth. The Montessori Method is a respectful one. Children are treated with respect and patience, and through this they learn to be respectful and patient with themselves and others.
